This is my first attempt at a homemade, and I must say, It turned out great! SCAN-S stands for Scrap Crud And New Stuff. Here's the pictures:

It has a CPVC coupler barrel, and gets ranges of 60'! For my first homemade from scratch, I'm Very Happy!

The CPVC you see begind the trigger is the bolt. It is connected to the plunger shaft, which is CPVC, with a notch cut in it. WHen you pull it back, the catch made out of plexi-glass gest pushed into the groove by a spring, thus locking the plunger back. When you pull the trigger, it lifts the catch, releasing the plunger. The spring is a BBB spring.

Very nifty looking, but (not to sound rude) lose the tape.

I could loose the masking tape, but it would be hard to loose the e-tape, seeing as that if it is epoxied on, it will be subjected to come off.

Edit:

Ok about everybody said it looks "ugly" So I decided to paint it. Here's what I got:

I think it looks much better now. And just so you know, I left the tip of the barrel white for a reason.

Updated ranges:

72' flat.

97' angled with slight breeze.

Impressive for your first homemade. That's decent power for a spring powered gun, it would serve you well if you went into war with it. Maybe make a magazine for it, try a deoderant clip. The paint job is okay, a little shiny for my tastes, but if you like it, that's all that really matters, eh?
All in all a great gun, I'm surprised this is your first homemade.
